Greenhouses, by definition, are artificial environments. This gives the greenhouse owner or manager a unique opportunity to create the perfect growing environment by managing factors such as temperature and humidity levels year-round. By employing Koolfog greenhouse solutions, micro climates are established and benefits realized in various facets of operation.

The advantage of a controlled environment can leave you with a very high harvest yield along with healthier seeds for the next season of planting. However, this level of regimentation is not an easy process to regulate. The environment within a greenhouse is a dance between many changing variables that are always slightly out of your control. Utilizing the regulatory aspects of a well designed micro climate can yield larger production than an outside environment while still ensuring the health of your future crops. However, determining how to best juggle each factor can be a long process. The challenge is simple, creating a perfect micro climate. The solution may be simpler than you would think.
Koolfog’s misting and fog humidification solutions can address many of the variables that need to be considered. Temperature control is optimized by the evaporative cooling processes via the atomized misting and fog line. With the drive of high pressure behind each water particle, the burst of mist that emits from each nozzle has the capability of not only removing the excess heat build up from the air, but it replaces it with water lowering your risk of ‘plant water stress’.
The risk of disease formation occurring within your crops can be exacerbated by a lack of humidity control. Usually, considering the environmental factors of a greenhouse, humidity may not be an issue unless you’re facing a particularly long rainy season or an extended drought with intense periods of unmasked sunlight. Even if this is a factor that doesn’t require a close eye much of your season, you need to have the option. Koolfog high-pressure humidification systems comes with a control set up that allows you to program temperature and humidity levels within your greenhouse. Much like an air conditioning unit, you can pre-program the perfect setting for your micro climate and walk away, or watch closely as your misting or fogging systems regulate to your optimal settings.
Our humidification systems run through a high-pressure pump that offers a component and maintenance package of the highest quality in temperature and humidity regulation. As each piece of our high-pressure system is chosen due to its superior quality, the end result is a solution you can rely on to regulate in the exact way you need.
Juggling the many variables within a controlled climate can be daunting due to the inability to gain complete control. However, the choice of integrating Koolfog’s misting and fog humidification systems within your greenhouse environment can grace you with the cost effectiveness of controlling large areas while enhancing your view of the mechanisms within your treasured micro climate.
